On Thursday, Fillmore’s four Cross Country teams competed on their home course, on the beautifully manicured greens of Elkins Golf Course. This was the third and final meet to determine the Citrus Coast League Champions (individual and team), and the Varsity teams that will move on to CIF postseason season competition. The teams competing over the mostly grass course with two major climbs were Fillmore, Nordhoff, Carpinteria, Santa Paula, Hueneme, and Malibu.

The Junior Varsity boys started the day off as they have many times this year by running to the front right off the line. They took full control of the race before the two mile mark, led by Jesse De La Cruz from start to finish as he won in a time of 16:56.02 and thereby securing the title of Junior Varsity League Champion. His teammates followed capturing 8 of next 9 places. Juan Carlos Lomeli was second in 17:18.39. Followed by Matt Munoz 3rd in 18:07.13, Dave Bustos 4th in 18:20.22, James Flores 5th in 18:31.43, Andres Gonzalez 6th in 18:45.11, Luis Castaneda Navarro 8th in 19:09.30, Nathen Hurtado 9th in 19:09.34, Daniel Martinez 13th in 19:47.02, Bryan Sanchez 17th in 20:09.09, Brandon Gonzalez 20th in 20:26:02, Eneyin Ortega 27th in 20:43.39, Theodore Ebell 35th in 21:36.25, David Reyes 38th in 21:46.48, Nicholas Hurtado 41st in 21:54.72, Luke Hernandez 58th in 23:16.83, Izaac Mercado 61st in 23:27.15 and Anthony Estrella 62nd in 23:39.32. The top 8 Fillmore athletes in this race were medal winners.

They were followed by the Varsity Girls who were led by Senior Vanessa Avila who ran a tough race and finished in second place, posting a time of 20:08.13. She was followed by Nicole Gonzalez in 8th place in a time of 21:22.53, Alianna Tapia 14th in 22:30.94, Angelica Herrera 16th in 22:40.37, Lorena Rangel Perez 22nd in 23:09.57, and Syenna Ponce 28th in 23:33.87. Vanessa and Nicole were individual medal winners.

The Boys Varsity team dominated their race placing all 7 of their runners in the top 11 finishers. They were led by Camilo Michael Torres. Camilo ran his trademark race, running close to the leaders before making his signature move just beyond the two mile mark and never relinquishIng the top spot again. Camilo’s first place finish in 16:04.77 was the fastest time posted on this course for any Fillmore athlete since we began to run at Elkins Golf Course. Camilo, League Champion, was closely followed by his teammates who as a team, posted an excellent team gap of 32.93 seconds. Fabian Del Villar was 3rd in 16:19.12, Davis Flores 4th in 16:25.51, Erick Gutierrez 6th in 16:30.45, Rey Laureano 7th in 16:37.70, Jesus Martinez 10th in 16:47.43, and Alex Manzo 11th in 17:15.23. Six of Fillmore’s seven runners were awarded individual medals.

The Junior Varsity Girls brought this excellent day for the Flashes to a close with another team victory. They were led by Natalie Cobian who ran perhaps her best race of the season to finish in second place in a time of 23:49.33. She was followed by Giselle Perez 3rd in 24:01.82, Eva Vieyra 4th in 24:02.42, Anahi Pascual 5th in 24:23.58, Isabella De La Cruz 10th in 24:59.64, Emely Garcia 16th in 25:34.90, Liliana Montejano 18th in 25:40.44, Daisy Guerrero 19th in 25:53.46, Isabel De La Cruz 28th in 28:02.71, Emma Ortiz 29th in 28:04.65, and Citlalli Trujillo Valencia 39th in 31:51.74. The top 5 Fillmore athletes were individual medals in this race.

The Fillmore girls and boys Varsity team will next compete in Riverside at the CIF Southern Section Division 4 Prelims, with the goal of qualifying for CIF Finals on November 23rd.

The last note from coach Lolita Bowman, for now.
Tis’ the end of the tennis season, sadly. Did we beat Santa Paula this year? Well, no. But we sure came close! The final score was Fillmore 8, Santa Paula 10. The line-up for the match was as follows: Playing number one singles was Heillyn Burr, number two singles Eveleen Lizarraga, and number three singles spot was played by Jimena Cortes who is definitely a rising star for the Fillmore High School tennis team. Jimena is a new player and has some of the best strokes on the tennis team. The doubles teams were the following: Emila Magdaleno/Melissa Higuera, Maritza Campos/Rosalyn Diaz, and Sofia Cardenas/Ashlin Rodriguez. Heillyn scored one point for Fillmore beating Santa Paula player Siboney 6-3. Doubles team Melissa and Emilia won all three sets scoring three points for Fillmore! Doubles team Maritza and Rosalyn also scored two points for Fillmore. Sofia and Ashlin scored one point for Fillmore. Way to go Fillmore girls! Second string team Kira Martinez and Jennifer Carillo wiped out Santa Paula’s doubles team Jaqueline and Marilyn with a score of 6-4. “We won coach, we won!” exclaimed Kira. Paola Ruiz, Samantha Pacheco, and Anneliese as four played one singles match each against their opponents. Anneliese came close with a score of 6-3 against opponent Alondra for Santa Paula. This match with Santa Paula had been previously postponed due to the windy weather and pollution from the fires in the area. I am so glad we finally we able to complete this match as we seemed to be walking on eggshells with any upcoming weather. Compliments were flying as the fans noticed the long rallies played on the courts. Thank you to Sydney, the gracious Santa Paula coach for welcoming our team on their turf as the Fillmore team is still unable to host any home matches. We are hoping to get together this summer having both teams participate in friendly pre-season matches. Even though we traveled out of Fillmore to every match, the parents of many of the Fillmore girls were consistently setting up chairs and tents to watch their daughters compete for Fillmore. Maybe the school district will implement tennis courts for the high school as the district delves into the construction at Fillmore High School. Who knows? Moreover, seeing the interested parents was a wonderful site. Did you know that Heillyn’s mother is a former tennis player? Maybe it is a genetic talent. Speaking of the parents, I cannot thank them enough for their support. The girls were always more than pleased to see their parents for these events. Also, I just want to fully disclose that learning how to play tennis is no easy task. These girls for this season were just incredible. They picked up the game and were competitive. I hope that I will improve as a coach every season. If most of the players return for the 2020 school season, I imagine that the focus will be on strategy, and putting the idea of learning the basic skills of tennis on the back burner. I will be looking for a few new girls, as the team will be near the full line if most of the girls return. So, if you are interested in playing next year, it would be a good idea to begin learning now. The city of Ventura offers tennis lessons year around-most of the lessons are held at Camino Real Park in Ventura. Moving forward, there are so many rules for tennis to learn also. The Fillmore girls found that out during the season as particular instances would arise: tie breakers and line-calling discrepancies. The finals for the Citrus Coast League were played at Carpinteria High School formerly scheduled to be played at Pepperdine University. For the finals, I chose six players to attend the tournament, even though I had several other players who were well qualified to participate. This was not an easy decision. The top two singles players and the top two doubles teams are invited from each high school in the league. Fillmore is now in the Citrus Coast League which excluded private schools such as St. Bonaventure and Villanova which were formerly in Fillmore’s league. Emilia and Eveleen were chosen to play singles that day on October 28, 2019. Eveleeen was defeated by Laura Ascencio from Hueneme High School. Emilia gave her opponent Veronica Palmer from Nordoff High School a run for her money as the final score was 8-5. Eight game pro-sets are played in the first round. Passer-bys were complementing the number one player for Fillmore, Emilia, especially after learning she had only been playing for a few months as opposed to her opponent’s experience of more than six years I would guess. The doubles team representing Fillmore were Carla (Melissa) Higuera/Maritza Campos and Sofia Cardenas/Rosalyn Diaz. Sofia and Rosalyn were defeated in the first round against Carpinteria’s team. Melissa and Maritza won their first match against Emma Silver/Esmeralda Velasquez of Nordoff, and then were defeated in the second round to Alondra Rojas and Maria Espinoza from Hueneme. Great job girls. After this tournament we celebrated at the beach enjoying the amazing sunset with pizza and laughs. The entire team will be celebrating down the road with plenty of food and good memories for the tennis season. Tennis is appetizing! Impressed with the tennis team is wording it lightly. The girls were a joy to be around, respectful and kind to one another. Thank you to all of the members of the team making being around fifteen teenagers more of a joy than a challenge! Thank you again to all of the parents, again and again!

On Saturday, the Fillmore boys and girls Varsity cross country teams traveled to Riverside. There they competed on the same course they will run on for both the CIF Division 4 Southern Section Prelims and Finals. The fairly flat Course is 3.0 miles and is run on an abandoned golf course (dry, dusty, not green). Fillmore athletes competed against 33 other teams.

Seven girls toed the line at 10:15 a.m. in the Division 2 race. Under hot, dusty, and dry conditions, Nicole Gonzalez was the top finisher for the Flashes running to a 105th place finish in a time of 22:11.6. She was followed by Angelica Herrera 115th in 22:41.3, Alianna Tapia 121st in23:00.9, Jasmine Vegas 127th in 23:10.3, Syenna Ponce 133rd in 23:30.2, Lorena Perez 136th in 24:12, and Giselle Perez 140th in 25:03.8.

The seven Varsity boys toed the line 15 minutes later under similar conditions. Davis Flores led the Fillmore contingent running to 26th place in 16:09.7. He was followed by Fabian Del Villar 28th in 16:12.1, Erick Gutierrez 38th in 16:18.9, Michael Camilo Torres 56th in 16:39, Alex Manzo 62nd 16:42.8, Jesse Martinez 63rd in 16:43.3 and Rey Laureano 68th in 16:50.9. The top five scorers were separated by 33.1 seconds and finished sixth in the team competition. Medal winners were Davis Flores, Fabian Del Villar, and Erick Gutierrez.

Fillmore also ran in the boys Junior Varsity Race and was led by race winner Jesse De La Cruz. Jesse captured first place in a winning time of 16:39.3. He was followed by Matthew Munoz 6th in 17:33.4, Dave Bustos 14th in 17:53.6, James Flores 25th in 18:12.3, Juan Carlos Laureano 32nd in 18:20 and Andres Gonzalez 88th in 19:52.2. This was the best finish for a Fillmore team, as they captured the team title, and in the process outran 18 other teams. Medal winners in this race were Jesse De La Cruz, Matthew Munoz, James Flores and Juan Carlos Laureano.

The Flashes teams will next compete on their home course at Elkins Golf Course on November 7th. This meet is scheduled to start at 3:30 P.M. The course is run over a mostly grass surface with some paved paths. There are two very challenging hills. This meet is the final Citrus Coast League Meet that will determine League Champions, Team Championships, and Varsity Teams that will represent our League at Division 4 SS CIF Finals. Come out and cheer for us.

A note from tennis Coach Lolita Bowman

We have completed a total of three matches since my last article in the paper. The scores are as follows: Fillmore 5, Santa Paula 13, Fillmore 1, Malibu 17, Fillmore 0, Carpinteria 18. The line-up for the Santa Paula match was the following: singles players from one to the number three position Emila Magdaleno, Heillyn Burr, and Maritza Campos. Doubles teams were Melissa Higuera/Rosalyn Diaz, Eveleen Lizarrage/Sofia Cardenas, and Ashlin Rodriguez/Erika Anguiano, and secret weapon team Samantha Pacheco (Sam)/Jennifer Carrillo. The score of only three points does not really represent the effort that the girls put into these tough matches. Singles players Emilia, Heillyn, and Maritza had close scores where the match could have gone either way. Playing against Santa Paula is also a challenge as we are not accustomed to the windy conditions at the courts. We will be playing against Santa Paula again on the 24th of October, so we will see if the girls redeem themselves. I can tell you, as usual, that I am so pleased with the skill level and the competitive spirit instilled in this team. They play their best! Scoring points for Fillmore that day was singles player Emilia, doubles teams Melissa/ Rosalyn, Eveleen/Sofia, and Ashlin/Erika. Great job girls! The next match that was played was against the seasoned team of Malibu high school. Number one singles player Heillyn Burr scored the solo point for Malibu. Sam and Jennifer were also playing singles that day playing their best against their tough opponents. Sam was pleased with her tennis that day, “I was surprised at how well I was rallying coach.” I can say that Samantha and some other girls have been staying after practice to put some extra time in. This effort has definitely paid off. Doubles teams Rosalyn/Erika, and Eveleen/Maritza came close to winning their sets with scores of 6-3, 6-4, and 6-3. As mentioned, these matches can go either way as the scores are close. I tell them to simply hit the ball sooner when they are up against opponents who can hit the ball hard and fast. Next time girls! After this match, the team enjoyed a picnic with an incredible orange, pink, and yellow sunset and ocean view in the background. The next match that was played was against Carpinteria high school on October 17. We did not score any points during that particular match, however, many games were won, including some close scores where either player could have been victorious. The line-up for this match was the following: Singles-Heillyn, Jimena Cortes, and Sam, Doubles-Melissa/Eveleen, Rosalyn/Sofia, Maritza/Erika, and secret weapon doubles team Kira Martinez/Anneleise Asfour. Heillyn came close to winning as her scores were 6-4, 6-3, and 6-3. Paola Ruiz, and Jennifer also played singles that day. Player Paola Ruiz expressed joy, “I had some long rallies coach!” I told her that I was absolutely impressed with her play. “I think the other girl said she has been playing for a few years,” Paola said to me. At times, I encourage the girls to have conversations after the match is over to realize the difference in the amount of experience that their opponent may possess. As our team in Fillmore is nascent, they can look forward to playing as well as some of their opponents in the future with hard work. In the end, the finals will be held at Pepperdine University on October 28, and 30. I will be taking the top six players to that event. This year I have a large pool of good players to choose from. At times some of the girls have to miss out on playing a match as school always comes first; especially an important exam day. We will see who will be chosen. The girls may have the opportunity to play against a previous opponent as this event will be including the entire league of teams: Fillmore, Malibu, Carpinteria, Santa Paula, Nordoff, and Hueneme. We will have to put up with enjoying the incredible view of a sunset and vast ocean as the finals take place. All for now, and thank you so much for following the Fillmore high school girls tennis news.
